By creating a design from a clean sheet of paper, NuScale and Fluor have revolutionized the nuclear supply chain through the factory fabrication of the NuScale Power ModuleTM and the way power plants are constructed:
The NuScale Power ModuleTM is factory built and transportable to the site by ship, rail or truck.
The small plant size and simple design leads to smaller components and a lower number of critical components.
Modularized components are fabricated and assembled at offsite manufacturing facilities. This standardizes the manufacturing process, increases efficiency, improves quality, and lowers cost.
Fluor's fabrication expertise and global purchasing power (i.e. >$15.6 billion in 2015) creates economies of scale and ensures competitive sourcing:
1500 supply chain professionals located in 29 countries worldwide.
Thousands of suppliers/vendors across all 50 states ensure competition.
Fabrication for U.S. plant sites is performed domestically at multiple locations.
Fabrication for international plants is performed at locations in geographical proximity to the plant site. Fluor has extensive fabrication capacity in five dedicated facilities located in Canada, China, Mexico, Philippines and Russia.
NuScale and its strategic partner Fluor are revolutionizing the nuclear supply chain through the factory fabrication of NuScale Power ModulesTM and the way power plants are constructed.
